    "WP2 made the EditExpertNet database available for public online access in May 2009. The database is presently located at www.EditExpertNet.org. The objective of the database is to provide an efficient online information service on European Taxonomic experts, their expertise and ongoing and planned taxonomic research projects. It provides searchable information on the taxonomists’ expertise down to family level, their research activities, methods used and geographical and environmental distribution of research organisms. At present, the scope of the taxonomic expertise covers fungi, plants and animals. In addition to providing information on the main institutional affinity of the expert, the database also lists taxonomic societies and networks in which the taxonomist participates. Furthermore, it is possible to conduct a search for experts by articles, presentations or published news." [Taken from the document.]

    "EDIT WP4 was planned to build upon the vision proposed for taxonomy expressed in the original grant proposal, to elaborate a common science policy and develop a joint research strategy to adapt to changing demands on taxonomic science from biodiversity, ecosystem research, and other stakeholders and users. Its core objective was to integrate current research activities and explore emerging areas for taxonomic research for EDIT, to promote synergies among research efforts within EDIT and beyond."

    "In training, the objective is to consolidate a high quality training that prepares students for future taxonomic careers. EDIT and other international partners established a European state-of the art School of Taxonomy: the Distributed European School of Taxonomy (DEST). Several EDIT partners and other partners invest in delivering training courses. EDIT contracts staff, develops training activities, and monitors the overall functioning of the DEST."

    "Within EDIT WP8, EDIT and other international partners established a European state-of-theart School of Taxonomy, the Distributed European School of Taxonomy (DEST), in order to transfer knowledge between current and future generations of taxonomists. DEST provides a high quality training that prepares students for future taxonomic careers. Part of EDIT’s financial means supported trainees to attend the courses by issuing individual grants.

    "D6 “First report on the analysis of changes in collaborative taxonomic work processes - parameters and methods” was written in June 2008 (EDIT month 27). It was the collective efforts of the NSC to introduce a set of parameters used to measure the progress of integrative efforts and activities in order to meet EDIT objectives 1 and 4. In all thirteen parameters and the different methods to measure these were presented. The high number of and difference between these parameters reflect the many different approaches being taken by the EDIT Workpackages and EDIT partner institutions towards realizing an integration of the taxonomic community."

D9 Report and online catalogue on existing taxonomic training resources in Europe

    "European science is facing a tremendous loss of taxonomic expertise as the succession of retiring qualified taxonomists is hampered by reorientation of work and by cuts in staff. Consequently, the passing-on of taxonomic knowledge and skills to a new generation might be decreasing. To evaluate if adequate training opportunities are currently still available to the new generation of taxonomists, EDIT scored today’s education in taxonomy and analysed its strengths and weaknesses. This exercise was needed to meaningful implement the overall objective of WP 8: establishing a European state-of-the art school of taxonomy." [Taken from the document.]

    "The overall objective of EDIT is to significantly improve the capacity of the European Research Area by integrating the efforts of its major taxonomic institutions. EDIT pursues this by working to create, and provide access to, more and higher quality taxonomic information, structured for accessibility and suitable for re-purposing, best suited for application in conservation and resource management. Thus EDIT will empower all biodiversity stakeholders throughout society. After 2011 the EDIT effort will be further supported and developed institutionally by the CETAF, which has decided to develop its management and policy capacities to build on EDIT’s legacy."
